to replace secretary of defense leon panetta. joining me now to look at all this: james mann, long-time journalist and author of "the obamians: the struggle inside the white house to redefine american power"; and david ignatius, foreign affairs columnist for the "washington post." david, as we heard the president say, a well-known man around washington and foreign policy circles. what strengths does john kerry bring? >> well, the first is the one the president mentioned. he has stature, he's well-known. he's being doing foreign policy from the senate for almost three decades. he's a person well-known to leaders around the world. the second thing that people don't know as much about is that he served as an emissary for president obama in some very delicate situations. the president sent him to afghanistan to try to make a better relationship with president karzai there. kerry is widely believed to have been a success in that. he was sent to pakistan for similar mission to deal with president zardari. it's less well-known that he conveyed a message, written message to hamas to try to
, for example, if we didn't do this and if we hadn't put defense cuts also on the table and if everything was on discretionary, for example, i don't think we would have gotten anywhere. i don't think the republicans would have even come to the table and would have even ever considered taxes, but i think the reason why they are is because of the defense cuts. it's not that the republicans are opposed to spending. they have no problem spending. it just depends on what we're talking about. if it's spending for defense, they have no problem with that. >> congresswoman, thanks for joining me today. happy holidays to you and to yours. >> thank you. merry christmas to you as well, and congratulations again. >> thank you so much. i appreciate that. >>> so a not so merry christmas for senator mike. a republican from idaho arrested for dui early this morning, and it is the day before christmas. we all know that. it seems more like black friday in certain malls. we're going to tell you about those deals across the country.

controversies. >>> former republican senator chuck hagel has not been nominated as defense secretary, but members of his own party already signaling an uphill confirmation battle if he is. barbara star has more on in surprising backlash. good morning to you. i think a lot of people thought after susan rice's nomination for secretary of state went away and everybody thought, okay, here's john kerry. he's going to sail through the confirmation process. so is chuck hagel. i think a lot of people were surprised by this news. what happened? >> well, you know, in the classic washington case, people are asking the question, was hagel a trial balloon being floated that's already getting holes poked in it. not nominated yet, but all the chatter had been he was the front runner to be president obama's choice as secretary of defense. no announcement. the silence is deafening from the white house. but the opposition already mounting. a lot of criticism coming from both republicans and democrats about some of hagel's positions while he served in the senate. i have to tell you over the last severa
for defense or hunting or sports shooting but they are absolutely deadly when used in a rampage like we saw in connecticut. the bill we propose would limit the size of magazines to 10 rounds. this will not stop all the killings but it can limit the damage by giving targeted people a chance to escape, a chance to survive. the american people are very clear in their message to congress today. ignore the will of the american people at your peril. they want change. they want it now. we can bring change by passing this bill on friday. >> i thank congresswoman degette for bringing us altogether this morning and for her ongoing leadership on this issue. as you can see, we have a great deal of sad experience. mr. barber was wounded himself the day he saw his colleague killed and our colleague, congresswoman gifford so severely wounded. we have our colleagues from connecticut, our colleague congresswoman mccarthy. a champion on this issue. our colleague from rhode island who can speak with some authority on this issue as well. and bobby rush, we'll never forget your own personal experience as well.
of spending cuts to domestic and defense programs will kick in, forcing layoffs in the public and private sector. if congress doesn't act, all the cuts and new taxes will squish the economy back into a mild recession by mid-2013. the impact of some of these new cuts and taxes wouldn't be felt immediately on january 1st because the irs and other agencies didn't expect it to come to this. it could be a few weeks before workers see more money being withheld in their paychecks. >>> george h. w. bush is in intensive care. a fever that kept him in the hospital over christmas has gotten worse. a bush family spokesperson says the 88-year-old was alert and joking with doctors but has yet to respond to fever re-reduce reducing medication. >>> there is a settlement in the runaway car debacle. the payout coming to million was toyota drivers. >> i opened it up and i saw sue's name. and right away, i thought a card from an angel! >> lost and found. the thrift store discovery that managed to connect friends that were lost and found a new friend along the way. >> and your next batch of clean shirts cou

citizen volunteers that would be summoned by their governors to the defense of the whole was preferable to standing federal military. a standing army had always been in the old world -- source of corruption of the authoritarianism of centralized power, dictators love standing armies because they got control of it they controlled the country. it was very much part of the early american experience that you did not want a standing army. one of the most important moments in george washington's life was when he resigned his commission and went back to mt. vernon because every -- almost every other commanding general in a struggle like this would have kept his army, declared himself regent or chancellor or dash king or president. and george iii is -- said to have remarked if washington actually resigns as commission and goes home would be the greatest manning to have lived and he was. so that -- the defense of the country then fell to smaller organizations. soing the second -- wording of the second amendment is, you know, the rights of -- militia well regulated militia being critical to deliv
enthusiastic about the haggle pick, of course, for secretary of defense. what's your reaction there especially after the susan rice fiasco with her nomination? >> i think you are right that there are some democrats who want to have a conversation about some pieces of senator haggle's record. that makes him interesting and good choice he once earned two purple hearts. is he a maverick. his whole career. >> laura: why is that a good thing necessarily? again i'm not trying to be difficult. winning two purple hearts is amazing and we celebrate his honor and service. that doesn't have anything to do with why is he a good choice now when both democrats and republicans seem to have real problems with him. seems odd way floating someone as secretary of defense. >> he has a military background. he has a senate background. he has a cost cutting background. he was a business background. administration background. he comes to the table an independent streak that makes him not part of the partisan bickering in washington that people are sick of. while it's perfectly conversation. mitch mcconnell said our n
and devastating defense cuts will go into effect in 10 days. the house has already passed bills addressing the fiscal cliff. we passed a bill replacing the president's sequestered with irresponsible spending cuts. we did that last may. we passed a bill to stop all the tax hikes on the american people scheduled to take effect january 1, and we did that august 1. and we proposed plans over and over again that democrats used to support but now will not. i do not want taxes to go up, republican do not want texas to go up. but we only when the house. democrats continued to run washington. what the president has proposed so far simply will not do anything to solve our spending problems. he wants more spending and more tax hikes that will hurt our economy. and he simply will not deal honestly with entitlement reform and the big issues facing our country. we need significant spending cuts and real tax reform to address our long-term debt problem and pave the way for long-term growth and real growth in jobs in our country. we will continue to work with colleagues in the house and senate on a plan t

as defense secretary. you heard from the president on friday as he nominated senator john kerry as secretary of state and the new speculation about chuckle over at the pentagon. here are the comments of congressman dingell, the incoming democratic member of the house foreign affairs committee. but there is a huge opposition to the potential nomination of chuckled to become the next secretary of defense, even the president obama has not made his decision. the former senator has come under fire for statements he has made, including one where he referred to the pro-israel lobby as the "jewish lobby." what is your reaction to that remark? >> i think that remark is a troublesome and problematic. it shows that the very best, a lack of sensitivity, and at the very worst, prejudice. i am concerned about the nomination. chuck if has been in the senate for a number of years. there is not only a lot of controversy with that remark, but with some of his boats -- votes. i have been hearing it from what my constituents, mainly in opposition to his nomination. >> you mentioned his boats. there are two sets

a pro-choice position to win votes. usually democrats have been careful and a bit defensive about that. it is the first campaign where a vote for gay marriage clearly didn't hurt and may have even helped obama in some states. so i think we saw a seed change. >> there was a time when all of us were saying, wow, what are the evangelicals and others going to do with a mormon candidate? and it wasn't an issue. >> i think that's heartening us for us as a country. no matter where you stood in the election, there wasn't a lot of expression of anti-mormon feeling on any side. and i don't even think, as far as i could tell, not even covert campaigns on this. and as we said before, white evangelicals said they wouldn't vote for a mormon. guess what, they did vote for a mormon. so i think it is good news for a country that we did not have real displays of bigotry that we often do have when you have a breakthrough candidate representing a new religious minori. >> i also think there was some anti-obama stuff in there. so when you start weighing in, oh, yeah, i'm kind of uncomfortable theologically.
